and more voters because obviously as you get closer and closer to the election, more people who haven't been paying attention previously are starting to pay attention. the closer you get to election day, the closer you get to the end, the more enthusiasm there tends to be. the people who weren't interested, start to get interested. you need to be gunning until the finish line in terms of registering voters. that's how it works. but again, the republican party announced today they will no longer be trying to register voters. this is a remarkable development. the reason the republicans have stopped registering voters is the company hired to do the work of voter registration by the republican party is a company called strategic ally consulting. they chose this company. they were going to pay them to do all the work for them in the five swing states. they the rnc picked that company and selected them to use them for this work. the executive director of the north carolina republican party says his state chapter had hired the company on the recommendation of the rnc. he said, quote, these a
the presidential election, and just 23 hours until the first presidential debate. mitt romney is in colorado where his handlers are desperately trying to teach him to be likable. romney advisers' chief concerns are the intangibles such as body language and demeanor. they want their candidate to balance his finely tuned arguments with personal warmth. his advisers knowledge that it will be difficult for him to endear himself to the country. his advisers have been nervous about how romney's intermittent anger would play in a one-on-one debate with obama. here are some of the primary debate memories haunting team romney. >> $10,000 bet? i'm running for office for pete's sake. >> i'm mitt romney and yes, wolf, that's also my first name. >> will you follow your father's example? >> maybe. >> i'm speaking. i'm speaking. >> the newspaper -- >> you get 30 seconds -- this is the way the rules work here is that i get 60 seconds -- >> no, but the american people want the truth. >> anderson -- >> you say you knew. >> would you please wait are you just going to keep talking? >> oh, yes. policing the rules. alw
situation room." >>> we're down to just 35 days until the actual presidential election exactly five weeks from today. here's where the race may be decided. we're getting our first look inside the debate hall over at the university of denver. barack obama and mitt romney, they are getting ready to face-off tomorrow night. and as cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta discovered, it will be one of the very two times the two men have actually met in person. jim is joining us live from littleton, colorado. what's the latest on this particular score, jim? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you right now that ann romney is about to take the stage behind me. she's going to be holding an event here in littleton, colorado, in a few moments from now. she's been one of this campaign's most effective surrogates and been very busy doing just that while her husband, mitt romney, has been doing debate preparations just a short distance away in denver. it will be fascinating, wolf, to watch the body language between mitt romney and president obama tomorrow night when they meet face-to-face as
for tuning in this evening. this is an important election and i'm concerned about america. i'm concerned about the direction america has been taking over the last four years. i know this is bigger than an election about the two of us as individuals. it's bigger than our respective parties. it's an election about the course of america. what kind of america do you want to have for yourself and for your children. and there really are two very different paths that we began speaking about this evening and over the course of this month we'll have two more presidential debates and a vice presidential debate. but they lead in different directions and it's not just looking to our words that you have to take into evidence to where they go. you can look at the record. there's no question in my mind if the president were to be re-elected you'll continue to see a middle class squeeze with incomes going down and prices going up. i'll get incomes up again. you'll see chronic unemployment. we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. if i'm president i will help create 12 million new jobs in
massachusetts did something quite extraordinary, elected a republican senator to stop obama care, you pushed it through anyway. the so entirely on a partisan basis, instead of bringing america together and having a discussion on this important topic, you pushed through something that you thought was the best answer and drove it through. what we did in the legislature, 87% democrat, we worked together. 200 legislators, only 2 voted against the plan by the time we were finished. we didn't raise taxes. you raised them by a trillion under obama care. we didn't cut medicare. of course, we don't have medicare but we didn't cut medicare by $716 billion. we didn't put in place a board that can tell people ultimately what treatments they're going to receive. we didn't also do something that i think a number of people across this country recognize, which is put people in a position where they're going to lose the insurance they had and they wanted. right now the cbo says up to 20 million people will lose their insurance as obama care goes into effect next year. and likewise a study of mckinsey and com
, the democratic and republican. >> the center piece of the president's entire re-election campaign is attacking success. >> no more he said/he said. tonight, it's face to face. and a lot of it will focus on your money and your taxes. >> unlike president obama, i will not raise tax on the middle class of america. >> i want to reform the tax code so it's simple, fair. >> the candidates' opinions couldn't be more different and the stakes couldn't be higher. >> their philosophy is if you don't are health insurance, don't get sick. >> now is the moment we can do something. and with your help, we will do something. >> cnbc's coverage of the first presidential debate of the 2012 presidential election begins now. >> tonight some of the most influential figures in the nation on the economy join us here on cnbc. >> we've got representative and hopeful ron paul with us. texas, from texas. he is of course outspoken about the federal reserve policies. robert reich is here with us tonight. also with us grover norquist. the man behind the no new taxes pledge so many republicans made. and bob lutz a former top
. a month and a day now, a month and a day until the election and, folks, we have a whole new conversation. >> this morning, we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. >> the president and his supporters, they're basking in the glow of the government's monthly jobs report. it is unexpectedly good. the nation's rate of unemployment took three ticks downward, 7.8%, that is still high, yes, but it is not political poison as in 8% or above. september jobs creation hit six figures, 114,000, and this is pretty interesting here because as it often does, the labor department revised its find frgz the last two months. revised them way upward. its latest tally is at 142,000 new jobs in august. that is up from 96,000. and the new tally for july topped 180,000 new jobs. mitt romney, just like the president in virginia today as well, is saying the recent unemployment keeps dropping is that more and more americans have given up, given up finding work and they're not counted as unemployed. >> i'll tell you this, when i'm president of the united states, whe
fundraiser for president obama's re-election campaign. national geographic's president told "new york times" the network chose the november 4th debut date here to help promote its fall schedule. he says other than being commercially opportunistic, we weren't considering the election. end. there you have it. i'm brooke baldwin. hope you have a wonderful weekend. don't go anywhere. wolf blitzer is up next. "the situation room" starts now. >>> brooke, thanks very much. happening now, important and surprising numbers about jobs forcing both the president and mitt romney to re-write their pitch to voters. ge's former boss calls the jobs numbers unbelievable. wait until you hear the smackdown he gets from a one-time member of the obama white house. and mitt romney's complete aboutface. how he now calls his 47% remarks totally wrong. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with president obama out there on the campaign trail making the most of today's unexpected and potentially, potentially game changing numbers about jobs. with only 32 days to go before the elect
was the election. ninety minutes of merciless pounding a chance of an otherwise very amenable mormon will do that. game not over. obama reelection not done. and mitt romney not toast. weeks to go. came on. a wall street that had dismissed his chances now saying all bets off. good for the challenger, not so good for a president that many argue looked more like a chump after the debate, now suddenly no debate. the president's. >> the people out there who are working every day you're not getting a tax cut, and you want to give them more. stock like you want to close the loopholes. you just want to add an additional tax cut over the loopholes, and that is a problem. neil: that was then. four years later clearly not as energized now. >> let's talk about taxes because i think it is instructive. now, four years ago when i stood on the status said that i would cut taxes for middle-class families. neil: the president is losing steam on stage. already fragile base. this is the basis that if you think about a, already arranged its inaugural in bites. what happens now? >> well, i talked to a couple of libera
time in his presidency. but is it enough to stop a surging romney? >> if we were to re-elect president obama i don't think we would measure up to the test of time. >> tonight, the one man who has debated both of them, senator john mccain joins me. >> frankly, i didn't expect the president to do that poorly. >> he knows when to hold them and when to fold them. ♪ know when to walk away and know when to run ♪ >> the legendary kenny rogers, taking on politics -- >> in all fairness i really wanted obama to be a great president. >> and talking about his music and his love life. oh, s, and we sing a duet. ♪ islands in the stream ♪ that is what we are >> this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> we begin with tonight's big story with just 32 days before the election, the new jobs report numbers are out and they are shaking up the race again. the unemployment rate fell to 7.8%, the lowest since january 2009, when president obama was inaugurated. he is hoping the new numbers will bring him a second term. he and governor romney know the election's all about the economy and both men were trading
to election and an entirely new dynamic in the battle between president obama and mitt romney. the republican nominee is widely seen as the winner of last night's debate while even the president's strongest supporters now concede he was not at the top of his game. and now the president is back out there on the campaign trail. he's getting ready to speak at a rally over at the university of wisconsin in madison. we're going to be hearing from him live this hour. but first, listen to what he said about mitt romney at a rally earlier today before he left denver. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. [ laughter ] but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. the real mitt romney said we don't need anymore teachers in our classrooms. don't boo, vote. [ cheers and applause ] but the fellow on stage last night, he loves teachers. can't get eno
the employment improved this level. it is just -- maybe it's a coincidence that the month before the election, we have a number that comes out 1/10th below when the president took office. >> sean: jack welch is not the only one tawing of this timely development. listen to what business insider said on fox business new york this morning. >> i feel like i am watching a movie, a suspense movie. because there is no way in the world these numbers are accurate. and somebody needs to dig real deep into this. how in the world, miraculously, we have the best flz 30 years, right before the election? somebody needs to do an investigation, like they are doing an investigation in libbia. they need to investigate the numbers because there is no way in the world these numbers are accurate? >> the same administration not telling the truth about benghazi and libya and the death of four americans. there are very important questions that need to be asked of the obama administration. when you look at the hardidate athere is no way to explain how the rate decreased from 8.1% to 7.8%. as the former director of the non
ohio, florida and virginia, you combine them, the exit polls from the last four elections have a 1 point democratic skew. the polling that has been done in the month of september in those three states has an 8 point democratic skew. >> bill: i know that. >> a 7 point -- >> bill: are you holding to what you said here last week whereas you don't believe these polls, you think that they are consciously -- remember what you said was done deliberately to put the president ahead in a psychological way. are you still holding to that? >> i do. >> bill: if the election were held tomorrow in like ohio where romney is up by 8. >> romney -- ohio would be too close to call. we would win florida. romney would win florida and virginia relatively handily. >> get back to the points on the debate. >> this race has been about little tiny things, little moves. what romney needs to do is to make it about the big things because on the big things, the american people agree with him. do you want more spending or less? do you want more government or less? do you want more regulation or less? do you want mo
this election. they've been put off now for a while because of the campaign, and i was very lease pleased with ou mea with how meaty the substance was. jenna: romney did well because the president didn't show up or bring his a game, those are some of the comments. did romney do well, because he did well or did romney do well because the president didn't go quite as expected? >> i think it's both. i think romney owned it because he was in control, energized. he was very well prepared. he gamed out every positive narrative of every thread of every topic and he was totally at ease and seemed to be enjoying himself. if the president had equally engaged and realized 20 minutes in, wow, mitt romney i underestimated him, he's having a great night here and put his foot on the gas he might have got a draw. he didn't do that. he looked like he didn't want to be there or want the job. that was something that happened to him a few times during a very long extended campaign with hillary clinton. that obama that we saw last night was often fighting the real competitor, barack obama who ultimately preva
in the work force today is as on the day the president got elected the unemployment rate would be around 11%. >> peter, when romney was governor of massachusetts, the unemployment rate went down because a lot of people left the state. is he fair to make this point now? >> i think it is fair to say that the unemployment rate has come down simply over the course of this recovery and the bahama presidency because fewer people looked for work. if the same number of people were looking for work today as when mr. obama became president, that number is consistent with my computations. it's important to recognize that this month the household survey for which unemployment rate is computed as opposed to the jobs count and enterprises indicated that about 800,000 people found jobs. that's about 6% increase in the number of people employed, which is an absurd number. no one can believe we have a 135% annual growth rate in employment with the economy growing so slowly. what it appears is a lot of folks out of work have established home-based businesses and they're working on some kind of part-time basi
. september proved to be a lucrative month for the president's re-election campaign. democrats raised $181 million. that's a record. joining me live from washington, peter hamby. that's a whole lot of cash raised. very amazing. say many, and all in one month. how was it done? big donors, small donors, what? >> the campaign says 98% of this money came from people giving $250 or less. sptd was a very big month for democrats. polls show that the convention really brought home the democratic base and these numbers just reaffirm it. this is the biggest monthly total of this campaign. this is the money that the obama campaign and the democratic national committee have collected together. it means they're only about $50 million short of raising $1 billion for this whole campaign. so they're almost certainly going to outpace that in the next month. this is a big symbolic lift for the obama campaign after that really bad debate. they had the jobs numbers on friday and this today. it helps the campaign reassure their base and their supporters that hey, things are going on track. jim messina, the oba
romney face to face as american voters weigh in on the election choice. the first presidential debate, as paul said, next wednesday night. watch it live here on cnn and cnn.com. >>> and the opening scenes of carmageddon appear to be free of traffic jams, for ten miles. one of the busier freeways in los angeles is çóclose. a repeat of what happened last year. there along the 405, how is it looking? >> reporter: well, so far, they are actually saying carmageddon two, to quote one of the fire chiefs is a very good sequel, so thumbs up, so far. and what you're seeing here is really what carmageddon is, the ten-mile stretch here of the freeway. you're talking all of this freeway, an essential artery here in los angeles, completely empty. there are no cars. you know how extraordinary this is. and then if you look up the 405 freeway you will see exactly why the 405 has had to shut down. this is the mulholland bridge, and the northern part of that has to come down. it has to be torn down to make way, at least that section, make way for an extra car pool lane. when the car pool lane is finis
the election. if you talk to republicans in massachusetts, the great fall back plan is this. scott brown loses this year, the governor ship is open in 2014. he's an ideal candidate to run for governor of massachusetts because of the likability. the party label is not as much of a hindrance. 53/33. he's no longer the most popular in massachusetts? someone more popular is an attorney general named martha coakley. scott brown, if he loses this race and tries the governor, good chance the opony net is martha coakley. it could be ended by the woman. >> for people not from massachusetts, he beat her in 2010. >> right. she could have the last laugh still. >> it's not mitt romney the most popular politician in massachusetts? i'm surprised by that. i'm the lone nonbase stater at the table, so i will leave the hard analysis to you three. there was a moment that really annoyed me last night. let's take a look. >> does bobby valentine deserve another year, or should he be fired? >> you know, i had such hopes for bobby valentine. i'm still just in wounded mode on that one. >> stick around. should he be giv
a ballot. democrats say it's to keep minorities from voting in the election, republicans say it will cut down on voting fraud. >>> the district officially opened its new crime lab today, that brings a new era of crime fighting into the city. the state of the art building will provide space for firearms testing and a new morgue, among other things. there will be room for testing for the flu and other epidemics and also analysis for possible terrorist attacks. the lab is in southwest d.c., not far from the national mall. >>> neighbors and friends are mourning the loss of a local professor hit and killed while walking his dog in d. krflt today. a car struck rhett leverett near 6th and e streets northwest this morning. leverett was a much-loved history professor at marymount. police say the driver who hit him had some kind of medical emergency, and lost control. >>> occupy d.c. protesters are back in town. they say they'll be here most of the week to mark the one-year anniversary of their movement. today there were scuffles with police, a few of them anyhow, aras the protesters marched along
he elected president to fix the economy. so that is basically the game plan from the romney campaign, do no harm and live to fight another day. >> it is interesting to say he's not looking for a knockout punch, that's apparently what shannon o'brien who was hoping to win that gubernatorial race in massachusetts back in 2002, that's what he said she was so good at. we're talking to her later. romney has been pretty -- he's been known to get forceful, jim, when he lets his dander up, if you will. let's look at a clip here from a debate, a year ago, this is romney, rick perry, mostly romney. roll it. >> the way the rules work here is i get 60 seconds, and you get -- and you get 30 seconds to respond, right? anderson -- would you please wait? are you just going to keep talking? >> yes. >> are you going to let me finish with what i have to say. >> remember that moment? i guess my question, having seen that back and forth, remember, you know, romney kind of getting into rick perry's face, can you be that aggressive toward the president of the united states? >> i don't think so, brooke. you
the rate drops below 8% first time in 43 months, five weeks before the election. there is some mistrust of these numbers along with the contradiction between 873,000 people found work, only 114,000 new jobs. mistrust of this report. bill: on that point it will be interesting to see how president obama plays this in fairfax, virginia later today. how mitt romney responds. he is in virginia, southwestern part of the state. also in florida. >> i suspect the president will play it big, we're going in the right direction. look at this 7.8%. how governor romney will respond i don't know. bill: stuart, 9:20 a.m.. this will pop up again. martha: let's get context of this. back in december 2007, when the recession began the unemployment rate was 5%. in october of 2009, that is the peak you see on this chart, that is 10% unemployment rate in the country. economists say a healthy u.s. economy would have a jobless rate of about 6%. that is shown by the yellow line you see across the chart there. today's report shows the unemployment rate dropped but stayed well above this mark of a healthy economy.
the focus today will be here at the very end, where it heads right before the election. for the white house, today's unemployment numbers probably confirm a cold reality, there just isn't much time left now for a major turnaround in the labor market before election day. the news from analysts may not be encouraging. >> we think the economy is going to be very sluggish as people sit back and wait to see how this fiscal cliff issue is dealt with by the new legislature and executive. >> reporter: that fiscal cliff is a combination of tax hikes and spending cuts due to hit at the end of the year after the election. the president coming off with what was widely seen as a lackluster debate performance, was in wisconsin yesterday with new found vigor. >> i want to export more products and outsource fewer jobs. >> reporter: that is a message he'll no doubt repeat at a campaign stop in virginia today. job growth is in positive territory, but not by much. and through so many months, it's been outpaced by population growth. mitt romney will be poised to strike, arguing that the unemployment rate under

is the linchpin to this election for the tropical any cam and they have been saying their polls show it much closer than anybody else. about it does appear that debate matters there. >> reporter: it shouldn't surprise anybody. this was the most watched debate in 20 years. it was the most watched first debate since the 1980 only debate between ronald reagan fan jimmy carter. once you put in the internet and all that stuff you are looking at 70 million people probably and a lot of them watched you do it on the fox news channel i should point out. but also the fact that mitt romney won so decisively. our come petters at cnn did a survey of people who watched the debate. 67% said romney won. compare that to the last incumbent debate with george w. bush in 2004 when john kerry, his challenger was credited with a decisive win. kerry only scored 53%. this was the biggest win in recent memory and the largest audience in 20 years. it's a big deal. we shouldn't be surprised it would move the needle in key battleground ohio. megyn: on the day of the debate. wednesday afternoon, a tweet was sent out by
